Many engineering applications rely on lubricated gaps where the hydrodynamic pressure distribution is influenced by cavitation phenomena and elastic deformations. To obtain details about the conditions within the lubricated gap, solvers are required that can model cavitation and elastic deformation effects efficiently when a large amount of discret...

Context 1
... EHL-FBNS algorithm is repeated as long as r n EHLFBNS and in case of an imposed normal load force abs(r n F N ) are above the tolerance tol = 10 6 . The most important steps of the algorithm structure are also visualized in Figure 2. The initial guess is always a zero cavity fraction field and a pressure field at ambient pressure. ...

... This convolution can be interpreted as the alignment of the non-dimensional hydrodynamic pressure field p ⇤ hd below the mirrored non-dimensional kernel function K ⇤ as shown in Figure A2. This is explained in detail in the following. ...
